To date, more than 80 churches and religious organizations across the country have already adopted PayMaya’s end-to-end cashless solutions. These solutions include Digital QR, PayMaya Checkout online payment gateway, and digital invoicing solutions. These allow their respective congregations to contribute to their mission using the scan-to-pay feature of the PayMaya app. Additionally, it also accepts contributions via any Visa, Mastercard, and JCB credit, debit, and prepaid card.

“Most aspects of our lives have been upended by the pandemic, but many sectors have found ways to continue delivering services. Our churches and religious organizations play an important role in our country’s recovery and we are proud to empower them with innovative solutions that can help them stay connected with their congregations,” PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando B. Vea said.


Mass gathering is restricted under the recent quarantine guidelines of the government. In effect, churches and religious organizations have adapted to the times by bringing the Visita Iglesia and other Holy Week activities online through social media and other video platforms.
